0

Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh government on Tuesday formed a special investigation team (SIT) to probe the rape of an 18-year-old woman, allegedly by BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and his brothers, in Unnao and the custodial death of the victim’s father.

“The SIT will go into the entire gamut of issues involved in the incident,” ADG (Law and Order) Anand Kumar told a press conference.

Earlier today, Atul Singh, the brother of the rape-accused BJP MLA, was arrested in Unnao. The BJP MLA has rejected the charge as a conspiracy by his opponents. The ADG also said that so far clean chit had not been given to anyone in the matter.

The victim’s father yesterday died in custody in Unnao, prompting her to charge that he was killed inside jail at the behest of the lawmaker.
